We have been today for lunch to celebrate amazing GCSE results. The moment you step into the environment you know you are in for a treat. The food choice was superb, very varied, beautifully presented and tasted good. A classy, relaxing atmosphere without being pretentious.

Entering the Grove is to step into a world of beautiful sculptures and grounds. You cannot fail to fall in love with the surroundings. It is also a little bit of an oasis in an area that has a dearth of fine dining. However, do not expect the slickness of a London hotel. This has more the feel of the... More

We went to celebrate our sons' exam results and they both felt let down by the quality of the food. There was a mound of smoked salmon but slithers of other smoked fish. The roasts were well cooked but fatty. The wok station used to have an Oriental chef but not today.

A special birthday treat for my husband, and what a treat. The choice of food was excellent, buffet style, such a choice. I thought it was a bit on the expensive side, but after eating there, it was well worth it. The staff were very attentive, I am in a wheelchair and nothing was too much trouble. I would highly...

Once again our family gathered at The Grove for an anniversary celebration. The laid back self service style suits any occasion and the sheer choice of dishes is mind blowing. The attentive staff are always on hand for any help required and keep a sharp professional lookout for any problems without being intrusive. Small gripe, drinks can escalate the bill... More

This was maybe my 6th trip t the Glasshouse and the food here is brilliant. It's buffet so you can just keep going up for more! The beef is absolutely epic.

Went here a couple of days back for a special occasion, surroundings were lovely, food very good but think five pounds for a coffee is a bit excessive !

My husband and I went last night to celebrate a wedding anniversary as we had been given a gift voucher as a present from friends. Firstly, the hotel is stunning. The staff are extremely friendly and the service is good. The Glasshouse is a buffet restaurant but the price tag is that of an expensive waiter service restaurant. The actual... More

Had a nice evening in the restaurant celebrating my daughters 21st . The food was of a good standard and enjoyable. Service was quick and efficient. And a nice surprise at the end with a candle in a cup cake and the words Happy 21st Birthday written in chocolate.
